Prince – Nothing Compares 2 U, Lyrics

It’s been seven hours and thirteen days
Since you took your love away
I go out every night and sleep all day
Since you took your love away
Since you’ve been gone I can do whatever I want
I can see who ever I choose
Eat my dinner in a fancy restaurant, oh yeah
But nothing, nothing can take away these blues
Nothing compares, nothing compares to you
Oh baby
It’s been so lonely without you here
I’m like a bird without a song
Nothing can stop this lonely rain from falling
Tell me baby, where did I go wrong?
Oh baby
I can put my arms around every boy I see, oh yeah
But they only remind me of you
All my dames remind me of you too girl, oh yeah
I went to the doctor, guess what he told me
What’d he tell you?
Guess what he told me
I’m listening
He said, rosie
Try to have fun no matter what you do
You want to tell me why?
He’s a fool
Nothing compares (no), nothing compares to you
Oh, baby
Hu, hu, tenor man, play it for me
All the flowers that you planted, sugar
In the backyard all died when you went away
Oh baby, I know that living with me baby
Is sometimes hard, sometimes hard
But I’m willing, I’m willing to give it one more try
One more try
Please do you know why, do you know why
Nothing compares (no), nothing compares to you
Oh, baby
Every time I say
Nothing compares (no), nothing compares to you
